Built in 1876, the Robertson Clark building is now an event venue and headquarters for events hosted by the Dalkeith Historical Society. This is a photo from Photoville 2018.

Zumba for new windows at Robertson Clark building

The Dalkeith Historical Society is organizing a Zumba evening to raise funds for new windows at the Robertson Clark building in Dalkeith.

The Zumba event will take place on Monday, October 1, from7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at École secondaire Le  Relais at 100 McNab Street Street in Alexandria.

Zumba with Bubpha, along with guest instructor Louise Stephenson, will include prizes, refreshments and more, say organizers.

Both instructors are donating their time and talent to this event.

Advance tickets are available and/or you can make donations to the cause. The historical society is aiming to raise $1,200 by October 1. The new window will be installed on the “street side” of the building, which originally had a storefront window on either side of the front door. Eventually, those windows were removed and the space had been boarded up with siding. One window was replaced in July; this fundraiser is for the second window, which the group hopes to install before winter 2018.

For information, call 613-874-2514 (Frances or Maggie at 1-613-874-9994.
